to see again that religion was used to veil discrimination. it was just really a disappointing piece of legislation that it even came forward at all, and that in 2014 we're evening discussing this time of policy. i saw you on lawrence o'donnell's show last night, and you said you normally don't make public reference to your sexuality, but you had to take a strong stand, given what was happens in your home state. >> you know, i think sometimes you have to stand up and speak for what's right. when a bill like this moves through the political process, you know, whether it was discriminating against the lbgt community or another minority group, it's important to stand up and speak for what's right and speak from the heart. if my story helped illuminate that or provided insight to the other members of the house of representatives, to the type of impact it would have on individuals, then i hope that it helped. >> it's interesting, many decisions we have seen in our country have been made through the motivations of money, whether you person was afraid they would lose money or could stand to
burden a person's exercise of religion even if the burden results from a rule of general applicability, a rule applied to everybody. now what the law does, what the law would do, this law that the governor is looking at, is make a couple of amendments. first of all, it would not apply just to a person but to a business as well. so a business could assert a religious freedom interest. and basically what it would do is give businesses who refuse to serve someone for religious reasons a defense if they get sued. so that's how the law would change the current religious freedom restoration act. it would apply to businesses. they could go to court if they're sued and say, you know, it was our religious -- this is our religious freedom. it would violate it to serve someone if we believe that would interfere with our practices and beliefs. >> so, pete, there are people who are making the argument against the law saying, well, listen, maybe a muslim business owner will say, i don't want to serve christians or maybe the law could be used in some other way. somebody who had an objection, let's sa
. >>> arizona governor jan brewer was forced to veto legislation that would use religion to codify hate and deny basic rights. major corporations like american airlines, at&t, the nfl and mlb, in addition to business leaders throughout the state urged the governor to veto the bill. while similar measures have been introduced in about a dozen other republican-controlled states like kansas, south dakota and tennessee, by the end of the week, the moral and economic arguments seem to have had an impact. now this comes as we've seen a rapidly growing acceptance of lbgt americans and issues like same-sex marriage. a federal judge ordered kentucky to immediately begin recognizing same-sex marriages from other states. so that suggests to me that the reason for the proliferation of these hateful measures is fear. just like the anti-women's rights and anti-voting rights legislation we've seen in states, these measures represent fear of a changed reality. but the question now is whether or not the events of last week represent a final tipping point in ensuring equal rights for lbgt americans. let's bring i
right-- race, creed, religion, color of skin, those kind of things. and there's nothing mentioned in there on self-professed behavior, and that's what they're trying to perfect is special rights for self-professed behavior. >> stephen: yes, self-professed behavior. unlike race, you can't tell somebody's gay just by looking at them. sphairs know, johnny weir is a perfectly straight wood nynph. you might be asking what exactly does "self-professed" mean? >> the thing i reference when i say self-processed. who do you discriminate against? are they setting up a case? is this about bringing a grievance or a service they'd like to have. >> stephen: steve king is right. these self-professed gays just want you to refuse them service so they can sue you. we've seen it a million times pain guy pretends to be gay, pretend to hide until he's 18, and then he prendz to come out to his family who pretend not tond and pretend to shun pim. he moves to the city a few years later, he meets another guy who prendzs to be day, they pretend to fuel in love and he prens to propose and they get fake eng
debate over gay rights, religion, and discrimination. >> after weighing all of the arguments, i have vetoed senate bill 1062 moments ago. to the supporters of this legislation, i want you to know that i understand that long-held norms about marriage and family are being challenged as never before. our society is undergoing many dramatic changes. however, i sincerely believe that senate bill 1062 has the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve. >> and you know, it's kind of a -- >> it's not really a defense -- >> no, the decision was met with cheers outside the capitol building. she was met with major corporations and -- the thing i don't like about twitter. to me, maybe i didn't know every nuance and detail about it, but just the idea that a lunch counter that someone would say, no, you're not being served here, somebody -- that was enough for me. i didn't realize how many different situations twitter people could come up with to show me that there was some time when this might make sense. it's like, i don't want to know all your splitting hair opinions about why
of behavior do you think they could get away with, based on religion? i mean, what we're talking about here is an amendment to an existing law that has been in place since 1999. it simply is closing -- well, not really a loophole, but court interpretation. it was originally passed as when you were an individual and went into a business or marketplace, you don't lose your religious freedoms, but some courts have interpreted that. but they also put in place a test that would prove, you have to prove you have the basis for your religious objection. >> a lot of people ignored that. you couldn't just go out and -- and make up a religious belief. let me ask you this, folks on the other side this is what this bill was, the modern-day equivalent of you can deny services of blacks who want to marry whites. blacks that used to get together, that used to be against the bible, against god's teaching. that was outlawed for three centuries and was not deemed illegal to do so to discriminate against blacks and whites who want to marry until 1867. and folks opposed to it said this is the modern-day equival

with her if she could come up with one single example of discrimination based on religion in arizona that people of faith have suffered through. she couldn't come up with one other than hypotheticals that maybe might happen. but she had no actual example of it actually having occurred. that's interesting because governor brewer specifically pointed that out. i want to play some of that exchange we had with nancy barta, one of the authors of s b 1062. >> senator, do you have any actual example of someone in arizona being forced to do something against their religious beliefs? >> well, in arizona it could be happening all the time, yes. >> do you have an actual example? >> well, surely. people may be being asked to -- >> i mean where it's actually happened. >> well, obviously if people aren't bringing it to court we don't know about it at this point. but we do know that without this law, people would not be able to defend themselves in court. >> but again, you can't name actually one example where this has happened. because people opposed to this say look, this is a problem -- this is
everybody else. we should treat everybody equally, no matter race, religion -- and so they would have been, i think, the state would the have been in trouble, because the super bowl was coming, and i'm sure other events was coming and people would have pulled out if that would have happened in arizona. i just don't like that either. >> magic johnson, thank you very much. great to be with you. >> you, too. >> see you on the final 25? >> i hope so. >>> we'll see if he's on the final 25. final concluding thoughts about magic, here to speak to the wpo, although not a member. his business interests go beyond those magic johnson theaters that you may be familiar with. he had lots of starbucks, which he ultimately sold back to howard and the starbucks company. his real estate interests, food service interests move far and wide. he has hotels in austin, hoboken and elsewhere and real estate holdings. magic the man, he is a huge, huge man, but what stands out about him is as big as he is, and he is big, he has an even bigger personality. and finally, there are two guys that i've met in my life who
loves her. >> less catering to the muslim religion than she is the muslim dollar or whatever. >> what do you think? do you think she's caving to the dollar or could you think she's afraid she will get ousted? >> not a simple answer. i think it's probably a combination of both but if you had to pick one or the oh, i think it's fear factor. look, there's repercussions. everybody knows it at this table, right? it's not just talk. they act, and they do some of the most vicious heinous things like murdering children, so wouldn't you be a little concerned? i don't blame her for that. >> if i'm concerned i'm in real trouble. from the public relation standpoint, if you were the head of the muslim country wouldn't you think it would be a good idea to at least step forward and say this does not represent all of us? >> i've never actually visualized myself being a spokesperson for the muslim countries, but, yes, i would have to say yes, i would. i have a question. how did the muslims even see that? you ever heard that somebody wants to be offend they will find a way to be offended. >> right, right,
provides that, quote, government shall not substantially burden a person's exercise of religion explicitly expanding that protection to allow businesses to cite a violation of their own religious beliefs as a defense if they're sued for failing to provide service. the bill was inspired by a new mexico supreme court ruling against a wedding photographer who refused service to a same-sex couple, and it massed quickly through the very conservative-controlled state legislature in arizona last week. in the last few days, pressure on brewer to veto the bill has grown from almost every corner. the arizona story crossed the threshold from political feeding frenzy into the mainstream. it was showing up on every platform yesterday, from espn to late-night talk shows. and though brewer claimed she was not influenced by cheers and boos from the crowd, it was clear from the outset that her state, whose reputation has already been tarnished over the years in the wake of the state's 2010 immigration law, had a lot to lose. on wednesday, the nfl, quote, began investigating the necessary steps to move next
, and they agree on this. that is sort of the old school, old time religion message. whatever societal problems you think are holding you back, it's not an excuse for you to is a advance. it really irritates a lot of young black men who say you're blaming the victim and you're saying you're putting all the burden on them to ignore all of these social ills that are real and not dealing with the social ills themselves. it's something that the president's critics don't like. but the interesting thing about president obama is that he knows that. he is actively engaging those critics. and he is pushing back. and he really wants them to agree with him that this is the right message to send to young black men. and you get the sense that this is a president who doesn't want to leave office not having given this message to young men, not having been a physical, living example of what he wants them to aspire to. he is a guy who believes that this aspirational politics is his core. that's his kansas grandmother talking to him. his upbringing with by his grandparents is what you hear. and he really does believ
. newly-released documents reveal that williams believed his religion, say tannism, a -- satanism, allowed him to kill. those documents show he previously killed two animals. >>> the controversy continues at a santa rosa mall after the decision to fire its head of security. you may remember this video of security guards approaching friends and family of andy lopez on february 17th at santa rosa plaza. the group was wearing t-shirts in memory of the teen shot and killed by a sonoma county sheriff's deputy last october. the guards reportedly asked the group to remove their andy lopez t-shirts or leave the mall. >> we're responding and acting in accordance to their policy. we adapted the procedure years ago on days of protest. it's worked well with occupy protests as well as other andy lopez protests. >> russell, the former head of security at the hall, says he was fired a week after the confrontation. he says he is considering legal options. >>> 7:37. happening today -- in just about an hour from now, an elementary school in san francisco is lawn. ing a student crossing guard program. brian
directly in the face of our religion. one of our core values as christians, we believe, is to love your neighbor as yourself. this bill is seeking to under a guise of religious freedom, it is seeking to give people license to discriminate. that doesn't love your neighbor as yourself. >> in the meantime, more national companies are urging a veto with a deadline a few days away. at&t, delta airlines, intel, text smart and yelp joined the earliest opponents of this bill. >>> a scathing senate report accuses credit suisse of helping wealthy americans of hiding billions from the irs. it was money hidden in panty hose, secret meetings in hotel l lobbies with no paper trail. christine romans is here with answers >>> the top brass at the bank of credit suisse, they acknowledge the behavior and say they have cleaned it up. senators are furious that this went on for so long. the government, the u.s. government, didn't do more to stop it. no question. today, right now, we're getting a very good look at the lifestyles of the rich and greedy. the numbers are shocking. according to the senate investi

to kiev. historically the two peoples have been very close in terms of language and religion and culture. this can explain russian attitudes towards ukraine. but it's also true that putin has established a firm authoritarian regime in moscow, in russia. he doesn't like the fact that his fellow slavs are leaning towards democracy. he sees that as a challenge to his style of police rule. >> yeah. sir, it's been great having you on, mr. ambassador. really insightful and your long look at the past for ukraine has been so helpful to us. thank you. >> thank you. bye-bye. >> all right. a second life for blockbuster drug lipitor. up next, we're going to discuss pfizer's plan to sell an over the counter version of its popular cholesterol drug. getting it without a prescription. and the chances of overcoming concerns that consumers could safely take the drug without guide freance from doctors. >>> plus warren buffett telling cnbc he would buy today's downturn. why? because selling their funds makes them more money. which makes you wonder. isn't that a conflict? search "proprietary mutual funds". y

a controversial bill that divided the state. supporters touted the legislation as protecting religion freedom for businesses but critics said sb 1060 denying legal service to same-sex couples. the governor's decision follows intense pressure, including thousands of petitions from human rights activists and press releases from some of the nation's largest corporation. among them is american airlines and daeelta and apple. >> instead, this is the first policy bill to cross my desk. senate bill 1062 does not address a specific or present concern related to religious liberty in arizona. i've not heard one example in arizona where business owners religious liberty has been violated. the bill is broadly worded and could result in negative consequences. after weighing all of the argument i have vetoed senate bill 1062 moments ago. >> john mccain and jeff plak who are republican senators publicly lobbied for the governor's veto and hailed the decision they made. >> mark, call it like she is. governor brewer was looking at business. she heard from the commissioner of the nfl they may take the super bo
